Dr. Elaine Ingham is a world renowned researcher advocating healthy soil as a function of biology and living soil as the key to fertility. Dr. Ingham gave a four hour presentation on her vacation to Hawai’i to the Natural Farming group to share the science of the soil discovered by the Rodale Institute.
